point in which hillary clinton advice is put into play, stop whining? >> everybody please. it is a really good question. >> i am far. we didn't hear a question. does someone have a question? >> i have a question. there is a way in which this conversation very much mirrors the conversation that men have about these issues or the issues that face the country that constantly make me feel left out of this because i am single. all of this conversation is directed towards families and family values and yet i believe the majority of women in the country today are actually single, many of them may be younger so you assume they will aspire after those kinds of lies, but i don't see you very much talking about single women and i do believe we should divide into different pieces but i don't often hear myself and other women like me reflected in these conversations. >> that is a good point but let me add a as a single woman you may have an aging grandmother. you may have a close friend, you may have our medical emergency. so a policy like paid maternity and family leave would be a gre

for democrats, you are on caller: when clinton was on office we did good going through the household finance stuff. when bush came in he didn't have no programs. i had a $150,000 business going good with 10 employees. and i got sick with cancer. i had to sell everything. i didn't have no way to save my home or nothing. i don't understand why they do this. you try to work hard with the banks, you get a lawyer and the lawyer wants to rip you off. i don't understand. >> i guess i'm not exactly sure what the question is. there are lots of problems when people are in foreclosure and there are all sorts of problems they have. it's always good to try to work it out with the lender. the problem is that when push comes to shove the house is collateral and the thing we're talking about now which is a tax issue is what happens after you lose the house and do you have to pay more taxes. host: we have a graphic from the "wall street journal." the big short is the hoin. headline. >> you can see from the chart here the volumes of short sales for the previous 12 months period for each month and they just gr

. >> cenk: maybe they have a binder full of pens. >> he has got to be bill clinton for a moment. explain it to people like my husband would clayne to me, stop spending money. that would help. but then he realizes that i have to make money. stop spending money is not enough. >> the problem is when you don't stop spending money. here who is not laughing this is john boehner speaker of the house. >> this is a stalemate. let's not kid ourselves. i'm not trying to make this more difficult. you've watched me over the last three weeks, i've been very guarded in what i have had to say. but when i come out the day after the election and make it clear that republicans will put revenue on the table i took a great risk. >> cenk: kind of makes you yearn for the pen jokes. >> yes. >> cenk: look, he didn't take a great risk. that's what the whole election was about raising revenue. raising revenue is code word for not raising the income tax rates. we don't want to raise rates we'll get rid of loopholes that we'll put back in next year. i love the point that dorothy made. i never thought about it that w

to get bill clinton's attention. because we weren't getting serious negotiations. somehow, after we proved how serious we were we negotiated. wented up passing welfare -- welfare reform, four consecutive balanced budgets we were able to work together because we had mutual respect. it is clear president obama has no respect for the congressional republicans. people -- it is not just a laughing party -- laughing matter. here's a guy with four more years as president and starting his second term with total contempt for the beam in charge of the u.s. house. they should indicate clearly not only are they not going to give in on the debt ceiling. he may have a hard time getting any money for anything out of the congress next year. at which point he's got a big problem running the government. >> sean: one power grab after another. harry reid proposing ending the filibuster so they can take control there. here's pro bowsing a blank cheque and gets to raise the debt ceiling at will obviously a lack of respect. i think the president who won't call let's say major hasan in fort hood terror or

. secretary of state hillary clinton criticizing israel's plans to settle parts of east jerusalem in the west bank. the move to build more than 3,000 homes would essentially cut the west bank in half. clinton reiterated u.s. support for israel but condemned the move. >> let me reiterate that this administration, like previous administrations, has been very clear with israel, that these activities set back the cause of a negotiated peace. >> the israeli announcement come just hours after the u.n. voted overwhelmingly to grant palestine a non member observer status. nbc correspondent martin fletcher is live for us in tel aviv. martin what is the respect of this settlement announcement? do you think israel will really move forward with these plans? >> reporter: well, that's a good question, alex. they've announced these kinds of plans before, mostly to score political points publicly in this case, then really delayed things in the planning process and things haven't actually happened. i think this time there's a pretty clear need according to the israelis from what they feel to respond in some w

the way we did when president clinton was president. >> mary is shaking her head and i am, too. i traveled enough in the far east to know you bargain appropriately with respect. you don't come in knowing that something's laughable. mary -- >> so wait. i don't travel in the far east. you think people should just give up on their principles and the things they campaigned for? >> no, but i think you do have to bargain from a position of respect. mary, is this something that was so disrespectful that you can't even counter, the republicans can't even counter bargain here? >> here's what -- i don't know why the republicans are so surprised. i myself was offended and felt disrespected yesterday because the working framework, the intellectual working framework, erskine from the bowles-simpson, from domenici-rivlin going all the way back was a basic framework of $3 of savings for $1 of revenues. we get it. it's the opening bid. but we thought the opening bid would at least be in the framework of this planet that we're dealing in. >> i will recommend that maybe raul felder get into this and start b

[inaudible] i would not want to betray any prejudice by saying what women do. i think a diversity on the board elsewhere is really helpful in a lot of cases. but you can always point to counter examples. there's a woman on the risk committee of jpmorgan chase when they just took the hit $5.8 million. mark to market is really -- what we saw was that certain tools in the hands of the right managers are really good. that would apply to all derivative. in the hands of the wrong people really don't work. gold manuses mark t
